We went back on Friday morning and picked up the two cases and the owner showed up with two more so I had to get them too. 88 pounds of cucumbers! We got through half yesterday with 64 jars put up. You see the picture at the top of the blog? That was over a month of work and we had well over 200 jars, but I didn't have to get them all done in a day or two!
We will be going through Wilmore after we go to Aldersgate up in Dayton and we plan on taking some pickles. Preacher man is going to figure the price for this years treasures today and call our buddy in Colorado who does my labels and get that all lined up. Me, I get to go work at the Creek, which it's a One Creek today, everything is 35% off so it should be crazy time. Then I'll come home and get back at putting the rest of the cuke's up into pickles! 14 day's is how long the magic takes to turn a cucumber into a pickle. Doesn't seem like long except when you haven't had one of these babies in over a year!
Oh, side note! Preacher man pulled 11 Hornworms off the tomatoes yesterday and 5 more today. If you throw them under your bird feeder the Robins will come eat them up! The point here is, don't forget to look at your tomatoes! These moths come in at night and lay their eggs and the next thing you know, infestation! Pull them off and throw them somewhere! They are very slow moving, look just like a leaf, so study your plants and help put an end to this moth! Dang butterfly people are going to send me hate mail now!
